He has an MFA in Creative Writing from the University of Minnesota, and spent five years writing for and then producing Garrison Keillor’s public radio program. ”As an English instructor, I focus on writing as both a means of communication and critical thinking. I believe that learning to write clearly, coherently, and compellingly is hard work, but I try to balance that hard work by making the writing assignments fun.” “Whenever possible, I encourage students to write about themselves. I have found that students tend to care more about a piece of writing when they are writing about something that matters to them, and they try harder to express their ideas effectively when they are expressing ideas about their own life experiences.” We are now living in the Digital Age. We can communicate through cell phones, email, text messages, and blogs, to name a few methods. But, do you know what medium to use—and when? Believe it or not, we still sometimes need paper documents, too! This class is designed to help you learn how different forms of communication can best be used, based on the message you want to send. You will learn the characteristics of today’s primary business communications, and how to use them to your advantage. Let a medium work for you, not against you—professionally and personally. 0.3 CEU F, October 3, 9 am – Noon Brooklyn Park, Potyondy-Smith $89, 1 session, #9273 Effective Electronic Communication in the Workplace Today, digital communication seems to be the norm. However, do you ever feel like someone is just not “getting” what you are trying to convey through the digital format— or vice versa? In this class, you will learn tips and tricks to make your electronic messages clear, concise, thorough, and accurate. You will learn how to write an effective subject line, what the proper length of a message should be, and how to write for different audiences. We all have a “digital personality”; make yours as professional and effective as possible! 0.3 CEU F, November 7, 9 am - Noon Brooklyn Park, Potyondy-Smith $89, 1 session, #9284 952.995.1330 Andrea PotyondySmith has been working full time for Hennepin Technical College English Department since 2004. She graduated from MN State University, Mankato, in 2001 with an MFA in Creative Writing, and has completed a Master of Liberal Arts degree at Metropolitan State University. She currently teaches Technical Writing, Writing and Research, and Intro to Creative Writing. She is the editor-at-large for the Wisport Cycling Series website, has had poems published in small literary presses, and has been a finalist for Chapbook competitions. “Being able to write well is a skill that everyone needs, regardless of their profession. Very often, written communication is the first contact we have with other people, especially in the digital age. It is the first impression we give to others. Good writing can often be the difference between having new doors opened, or having them closed in your face.” This course will help you understand the Deaf community as a linguistic and cultural minority group: the role of Deaf people in the larger society, political activism, laws, access to information, educational philosophies and methods, and communication systems. You’ll learn the differences between Deaf; deaf, late-deaf, oral deaf and hard-of-hearing and how to work with interpreters. We’ll identify common communication barriers often encountered by people who are deaf or hard of hearing and explore appropriate methods of communicating with them. 1.05 CEU R, September 11 – 25, 6 - 9:30 pm Brooklyn Park, Chellin $129, 3 sessions, #9297 “Great overview of retirement issues and opportunities. ” – Attended March 2014 “Presenter was able to explain things in understandable language” – Attended March 2014 hennepintech.edu/cts NEW!

On the last day the instructor did an exercise on the blackboard where all the students would name all the symptoms of chest pain, abdominal pain and shortness of breath.

These labs feature hands-on simulators for various industries including: CNC Machining, Welding, and Automated Controls. Also included in the labs are 3D Printers, Computer Aided Manufacturing (CAM) software, and online curriculum. Matt Leaf, Director of MAAC noted, “Local manufacturers indicated that their biggest challenge was hiring a talented workforce and overcoming the skills gap. One way the vLabs will help shrink this gap is by making technical education more accessible and flexible. The crucial funding provided by the U.S. Department of Labor has greatly improved our ability to deliver this innovative educational model.” In April 2014, HTC held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the vLAB at their Brooklyn Park Campus. By Fall 2014, two additional vLABs will be opened at both the Eden Prairie Campus of HTC at EMERGE’s Career & technology Center in North Minneapolis. 40 Additional sites are also in the works at the Wright Technical Center in Buffalo, Minnesota and the Hennepin South Workforce Center in Bloomington, Minnesota. Besides the vLabs, MAAC is implementing a variety of innovative enrollment and support services to help students successfully achieve their higher education goals and, ultimately, start a new career or advance within their current one. For example, a Credit for Prior Learning (CPL) model is being developed that will assess students’ skills and award them college credit for learning acquired outside a college classroom. In addition, several of our on-campus classes are being converted to an online or blended format so that students can comfortably take courses on their own time. MAAC works to support a variety of people. Veterans returning from active duty are a large focus of this project. They have financial responsibilities and often need a degree to land a high paying job despite their specialized military training. MAAC can accommodate them by awarding college credit for applicable skills, as well as, connect them with HTC’s Veterans Resource Center to help them along the way. Those who have been granted Trade Adjustment Assistance (TAA) status or Dislocated Workers status are another focus of this project. However, anyone who has an interest in the cuttingedge manufacturing sector can be served by the flexible, accessible curriculum and shortened time to earn an award based on CPL. The MAAC program can help those who need to update their skills or attain new ones. Many options are available that lead to credentials, diplomas, or an Associate’s Degree and, ultimately, a new career in the expanding manufacturing field. This product was funded by a grant awarded by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Employment and Training Administration.

HTC provided customized safety presentations for Park Construction’s safety seminars that meet our needs and helped improve our fleet management program. I am looking forward to working with HTC’s Industrial Safety Coordinators in the future for providing safety training for employees whom are involved in our fleet management program.” – Andrew Sikkila, Park Construction Company, On-Site Safety Manager Download the current HTC Industrial Safety and OSHA Compliance course catalog online at: hennepintech.edu/customizedtraining/cts/38 hennepintech.edu/cts “My HTC training came full circle” John recalls, “As a Fire Marshall I inspected sprinkler systems, and because of my HTC training, I could read and understand the diagrams, allowing me to better judge their safety capabilities.” Believing passionately that industrial safety training for businesses and employees is the best prevention for fires and accidents, John became an adjunct Industrial Safety Instructor at HTC. He now uses his in-depth fire and rescue knowledge to design industrial safety training solutions for businesses, companies and industry. “I visit a site, evaluate their needs and then design a safety training program specifically for them” John explains TRADES & INDUSTRY This course is designed for construction and industry personnel who are currently, or are training to be, responsible for the operation of cranes and hoists, the rigging of suspended loads and giving signals to crane operators or the development of a written lift plan.

Graduating from HTC with a degree in Architectural Mechanical Drafting in 1976, John partially credits designing sprinkler systems as a draftsman, for piquing his interest in fire prevention and industrial safety. At 21, while working as a mechanical drafter, John signed on to be a volunteer firefighter in St. Louis Park, and discovered he liked it so much that he switched careers. After receiving his training from the HTC fire protection program he became a full-time firefighter in 1979, eventually becoming a Fire Investigator and Fire Marshall. “I love my job...

The re-purposed 22-foot trailer replaces an earlier non-mobile unit which was not versatile enough to meet all the training demands for CTS clients and customers. “We had a trailer for confined space training, however we felt we needed a better tool for doing hands-on training for a number of different subjects like confined space, HazMat, trenching, and fire extinguisher ” said Erik Gohl, CTS Industry Safety Coordinator. “Our training takes us offcampus, to an employer’s site, and we needed a tool that could better meet the training goals.” said John Lindstrom, Adjunct Instructor for CTS Industrial Safety Training, “In the past, we have been limited as to what we could do—because we could only use what the employer had on hand at their site. Now we can use the HTC safety trailer – and have maximum control over the training.” The new safety trailer, designed by Erik and John, became a reality when CTS purchased a trailer from a construction company with National PETE dollars. Configured for multiple uses, the trailer supports a wide 44 Did you know that lost productivity from injury and illness costs businesses $60 billion each year? General variety of training such as Confined Space Entry & Rescue, Trenching, Fall Protection, HazMat Responder, Incident Command, Lockout/Tagout, Fire Extinguisher and Fire Brigade training. After the trailer was purchased, Erik looked to HTC faculty and students to bring his vision to life – “The HTC welding instructors helped with the deck, ladder and vertical confined space hatch.” beamed Erik, “and HTC auto body students painted the trailer from white to black”. For the safety trailer wrap, Erik worked closely with Laura Holicky, an HTC web design student, to create a memorable and impactful graphic design. “The trailer looks even better than I imagined “ Erik continued “not only does it increase our training options, but it’s also a 22-foot rolling billboard for HTC and Customized Safety Training.” Since it’s completion in May, the new safety trailer has been on the move and used for confined space training in Bismarck, Plymouth, and Detroit Lakes. In June it was used for Confined Space Training at the Minneapolis airport and City of Minneapolis. The new 22-foot HTC Safety Trailer is sure to get attention wherever it goes. Asked what did he think the first time he saw the finished trailer?
